Marc Brownstein

Marc Brownstein & Aron Magner are co-founders of The Disco Biscuits - one of the most influential and important bands in the modern era of improvisational rock and "electronica” music.  For the last 3 years, the duo has self-managed the band along with fellow musician and co-founder Jon Gutwillig. Brownstein, Magner (and Gutwillig) also conceived of, and own, a prominent music festival, Camp Bisco, which is recognized by The New York Times, Bob Lefsetz and others as one of the first music festivals built around and curated by a specific artist. Since 1999, Camp Bisco has led the way in merging electronica and rock, for which The Disco Biscuits are known, with elements of indie rock, hiphop and "pop music". 

The pair live in the suburbs of Philadelphia, where Magner also serves on the board of Philadelphia Young Playwrights - an organization his mother founded to inspire learning and creativity through playwriting to student populations that may otherwise have limited access to the arts. Brownstein is the co-founder and board member of HeadCount - a 501c3 non-profit organization that focuses on voting and activism education within the broader live music community. HeadCount partners include all major concert promoters around the country, in addition to a multitude of the country's major music festivals, musicians and other public figures that transcend the music industry.
